Senior Internship-Folio Weekly

These are links to work I have done over the course of my internship at Folio Weekly, a magazine in Jacksonville, Fla.

Blogs written during my time at Folio Weekly were either assigned to me or topics I picked based on their newsworthiness. The blogs mostly cover arts and entertainment events in Jacksonville and the surrounding areas.

This blog is an opinion piece on Jacksonville’s Jazz Festival. It highlights the good, the bad and the long walk through Downtown Jacksonville.

Girls Rock Jacksonville is a non-profit organization that holds a summer camp where girls can learn to play instruments and form their own band. They are currently in search of a permanent location for the camp so they can increase their programming.

This piece is what’s called a “live blog.” Live blogs recap an event and feature interviews and photos of the people who were there. Downtown Jacksonville’s Southlight Gallery celebrated its fifth anniversary with their Member’s Choice and Reunion exhibits that featured local artists such as Jeffrey Luque and Lois Newman.

This is a “preview blog.” This event was already featured as an Our Pick but I decided it could use a little more attention. These types of blogs are designed to give the audience a look into what an event will entail. This is a preview of the 7th Annual Black Arts Festival held by Jacksonville theater company, Stage Aurora.

The Eye features photos of event-goers and can be found at Though Folio Weekly doesn’t post The Eye as much as they used to, I thought it would be a fun idea to have some photography clips on my portfolio.

These photos were taken at the July 2 Art Walk in Downtown Jacksonville. This is a great location for photography because there’s plenty to do and see.
